Casey's Pond Senior Living provides the only continuum of living community to older adults and their families in the Yampa Valley. This means Casey's Pond supports residents in independent living, assisted living, memory support, long-term skilled nursing, and short-term rehabilitation settings. 

The "Casey's Way" empowers residents to live their lives on their terms, directing their own services and care, contributing to the fabric of our community, and continuing to grow and experience all life has to offer at every level of living.

This past year, Casey's Pond took the innovative step to integrate those needing memory support into our skilled nursing setting in the Doak Walker House. The increased benefits for those living with cognitive and physical challenges include a higher quality of living in a more social setting and a more person-centered and inclusive approach to support and care. 

To help complete this transition, we are working to update and revitalize our outside courtyard in the Doak; however, at the moment, it is not fully accessible. More details can be found on our support page. 

Casey's Pond is a non-profit, pet-friendly, and inclusive community created by people who love living in the Steamboat Springs area. What sets our senior living community apart is how our environment encourages residents to follow their passions and discover meaningful connections. Here, relationships flourish, and everyone is valued.


Casey's Pond has received many awards, including the 2023 Customer Experience Award from Pinnacle Quality Insights, a nationally recognized customer satisfaction firm. This is the 3rd straight year for this honor, which places the Doak Walker skilled/memory neighborhood in the top 15% of care providers in the nation. Casey's was awarded World's Best Culture by Drive, a leading consultancy firm specializing in senior living culture. The certification used the renowned Barrett Values Centre's Culture Values Assessment, which sets benchmarks across all industries.  Receiving this certification directly correlates to the quality of care and services at Casey's Pond and to it being an exceptional place to work!

Our family has had an excellent experience! The staff at Casey's Pond are gracious, skilled, down-to-earth and excellent at what they do. From our first introductions over e-mail, all the way through to our move-in day, the communication has been warm, receptive and intuitive. The building is beautiful and tended to with care by an upbeat and diverse set of care providers. We feel so fortunate to have found such a great match!

Background Statement

In 2008 Yampa Valley Medical Center set out to determine if a senior living community is needed in the Yampa Valley. As a result, Casey's Pond was built and opened in October 2013 to serve older adults and their families. Residents from the Doak Walker Care Center previously located at the Medical Center moved to the community forming the Doak Walker House skilled nursing neighborhood. Today, Casey's Pond Senior Living offers a variety of living environments including, independent living, assisted living, memory care, respite care, and long-term and short-term skilled nursing. Casey's Pond is the only Continuing Care community in the Yampa Valley and mountain region.
